Interesting question EA

These are essentially techniques that could be used by developers to enhance accessibility for those with cognitive impairments. However....


I think there is a usefulness of adding a section for techniques for those with cognitive disabilities to help them access web pages/services. Here is why. It can help us develop developer techniques that make sure user techniques will work. 




Kinshuk  can you add a section for user techniques ?

All the best

So sorry but I may have missed the minutes that addressed what was wanted in this wiki document as I cannot find any notes I have made. 
 
Please could you possibly let me know – are these techniques that could be used by developers to enhance accessibility for those with cognitive impairments or the techniques we would be offering to those with cognitive disabilities to help them access web pages and online services depending on whether they are using a desktop browser and computer or one of the many tablets with browser apps? 
 
I do apologise if I have missed this and also how you would like to see the content laid out? 
 
Best wishes

Dear all 
  
The wiki page https://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/cognitive-a11y-tf/wiki/Techniques_and_Strategies_For_The_Cognitive_and_Learning_Disabilities_Accessibility_Task_Force_(COGA) has been now fully formatted, and is ready for adding content. Please feel free to send the content to me, and I shall add that to the page. If you have access to wiki editing functions and would like to add yourself, that would also be fine. 
  
With regards, 
  
Kinshuk
